On May 29, Sauk Prairie School District's retirees were honored by the Sauk Prairie Optimist Club. Cliff Thompson introduced the retirees and shared their years of service in the SPSD as well as their total number of years in education and a brief statement about each individual. In alphabetic order the 2019 retirees are Anne Brickl, lead assistant at Grand Avenue (12 years in the district and in education), Janice Dederich, teaching assistant at Spruce Street and Bridges Elementary (28 years in Sauk Prairie and in education), Scott Erlandson, Sauk Prairie Middle School Assistant Principal (28 years in district and 35.5 years in education), Mari Larson, first grade and kindergarten teacher at Spruce and Bridges (19 years in Sauk Prairie and in education), Sidnee Malek, Speech and Language teacher and Lead Teacher at Merrimac (19 years in district and 22 in education), Mark McNeely, Maintenance (9.5 years in district and in education), Susan Paulson, District Reading Specialist (4 years in Sauk Prairie and 29 in education), Dodi Parker, Eagle Academy Lead teacher (16 in district, 24 in education), Cindy Quam, SPMS special and regular education teacher (23 in Sauk Prairie, 33 in education), Brenda Schlough, Administrative Assistant to the Superintendent and Central Office who retired mid-year (30.5 in district and education), Jill Stone-Brisky, first and kindergarten teacher at Spruce and Bridges (27 in Sauk Prairie and 33 in education), Ellen Sweeney, Literacy teacher (17 in Sauk Prairie and 33 in education). Continuing what has become a tradition, this year's retirees decided that rather than receiving a plaque and having a video done for them, they are giving the money the district would have spent on those items to the Sauk Prairie Area Food Pantry. The retirees will also be honored at the end of the year luncheon on June 8 at the High School.
